As one of the first independent wineries to be establish in Marlborough in 1990, Allan Scott Family Winemakers have made a name for themselves with nearly 40 years experience in the wine industry. Scott Base is Allan Scott's premium Central Otago range which was created after the Scott family embraced their longstanding love of the region and went hunting for the perfect vineyard site. Framed by the Pisa mountain range, with views of Lake Dunstan, Scott Base vineyard may only produce a limited vintage, but every bottle brims with the experience and enthusiasm that comes from many years of winemaking. This classic pinot displays notes of red fruit with plenty of smooth tannins and gentle oak. A winner for fans of any fan of premium Central Otago Pinot.
The winery writes "The Scott Base Pinot Noir exhibits classic Central Otago aromatics of ripe cherries, raspberries and wild thyme. The palate is full of primary fruits and finishes with smooth tannins and oak sweetness. Ideal with patés and salami, this wine matches beautifully with beef and lamb dishes, and try also pairing with game. Don’t be afraid to serve with a dark chocolate mousse either. Drink now or cellar for up to 5 years."
